Default Upgrading Photoshop

I have CS on a PC (running Win XP Premium) and would love to add it to my new Dell XPS laptop running Win 7. I have been told by a few people, though I can't seem to confirm this anywhere else, that every Photoshop licence automatically allows two installations when one is a desktop and one is a laptop. Any views on this. Of course I will ask Adobe eventually but dealing with them by phone is a nightmare I only undertake as a last resort.

Also I would love to upgrade to CS5. Is CS too early a version to allow an upgrade to CS5 (at the much lower price for upgrades).

The EULA allows Photoshop to be installed on 2 computers at a time, not just 2 installations. - http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/search/...teSection=home

CS2 is the earliest release that qualifies for CS5 upgrade pricing. - http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop.html

Make a note that CS6 is due to be launched soon. CS3 will likely be the earliest release that will qualify for CS5 upgrade pricing.

Double check but I do not think CS will run on WIN7.

I run CS5 on a Win 7 machine and an XP machine and it's fine. The whole license thing just requires that you not have more than 2 machines with an "active" version. If you want to install on a third machine, you must "de-activate" it on one of the others.

I did however read that CS6 will not support 32 bit Win 7 so be sure you have the 64 bit version running.

From adobe press release..

With these great new releases coming in the first half of 2012, we want to make sure our customers have plenty of time to discover which offering is best for them. Therefore, we’re pleased to announce that we will offer special introductory upgrade pricing on Creative Suite 6 to our customers who own CS3 or CS4. This offer will be available from the time CS6 is released until December 31, 2012. More details on this offer, as well as any introductory offers for existing customers to move to Creative Cloud membership, will be announced when CS6 and Creative Cloud are released later this year.

This is an OFFER -- NOT a promotion.

The "Introductory upgrade offer" will be available to shrink wrap boxed software, and licensing. The offer will be applicable to all Routes to Market, regardless of IF Creative Cloud is offered. This is specifically for CS6 perpetual upgrades.

Old news. Adobe has changed its stand on the issue. CS5 will get best price for upgrade but earlier versions will also get an upgrade price.
